    Hastings advertises a micro grooved barrel that is supposed to keep the wad from rotating in the barrel and deliver 7 to 10% more shot to the target.

    Has anyone tried this? Do you know if it works?

    Slowdp,

    Straight rifling does in fact work if it is done right. The Ruger trap gun had this feature and it through the most incredible patterns that I have ever seen, bar none.

    I haven't had a chance to play around with a Hastings barrel yet, but I will get an 1100 so I can do so one day.

    There will always be naysayers, but from what I've seen it works.
